My advise is this, if you get an opportunity for a winter¬† break¬†to Amsterdam definitely go for this trip.¬† I mixed it up with Spain so kind of got the best of both worlds.¬† I’m going to break this trip up into multiple posts.¬† Amsterdam, Barcelona, Seville & Granada.

my itinerary was:  (there was more but this is what we managed)

  • the Anne Frank house¬† (buy your tickets ahead)
  • World War II and the Holocaust in Amsterdam.¬† I booked with history walks and I highly recommend them.¬† Peter was very knowledgeable, great personality and brought the history alive for us.¬† I highly recommend this tour.¬†¬†¬† Here is the website:¬† http://www.historywalks.eu
  • The Resistance Museum , website:¬† http://www.verzetsmuseum.org/museum/en/museum
  • Dinner cruise on the canals booked with Viator.¬† (excellent)

    We used the bus 197 to get to the hotel from the airport.¬† Nice and easy.¬† Here are some photos from our trip. ¬† The Superbowl was on my last night AND my hometown team the Ravens played and WON!!! ¬† I could not stay up that late but I wore my team colors that night.¬† What can I say?¬† The old girl ain’t what she used to be! ¬†¬†
